Get rid of cataracts without surgery.

Just have the eye doctor call the nearest compounding pharmacy and ask for the following formulation. DMSO 6.25% Glutathione 1.25% Vitamin C 1.25%.

The drops sting a bit, but the stinging passes after about 30 seconds.

The lenses of our eyes respond to high blood sugar levels by helping to remove some of the excess. Unfortunately , the lenses have nowhere to store this access sugar, so over time, it literally " condenses" into cataracts. In other words you could be suffering from sugar-insulin metabolism. So try the eyedrops as a preventative and as a cure. It works for most but not all.

HI U RON, , , , my cataracts have been coming on for a few years and now are starting to effect my sight. My ophthalmologist told me to call the shot when he puts in a new lens. Recently I came across your eye drop formula via a medical subscription letter and will pick that up this week from a compounding pharmacy. Your post is now several years old, so I would appreciate your feedback from your use of these drops.

As all know, I am SJS, and should have been taking a supplement to help prevent this from happening at all. I will be smart in the next life if I don't come back as a goat. Tests have shown that your aging eye gets depleted of Glutathione and that is the main substance in the eye drop formula that you recommend. My wife's anti- aging doctor put her on NAC supplement because she was low on Glutathione and NAC is the precussor. I now do compounded Gluthathione via a nebulizer, but that's too late for my eyes.

All I read from the natural folks is that it's the free radicals which get you as you age and your natural anti-oxidant , Glutathione, goes down. You can build that back with the NAC supplement , or expensive I.V.'s or inhaling the compound via a nebulizer. I am now convinced that Glutathione is a big deal for folks as they age. Thank you or others, who can shed some light on the topic of Glutathione eye drops to cure cataracts.

DMSO (used often with horses: penetrates through the skin if used topically and carries into yr body whatever is mixed with it; an anti-inflammatory), vitamin C and Glutathione is called Dr. Rowen drops. There is a pharmacy that compounds it. Expensive. Did not help me.

Cataracts & EDTA.

I saw a study that indicated that EDTA might help cure cataracts. This is my experience.

I had an appointment with an eye doctor in November 2019. He indicated I was starting to develop cataracts. I had heard somewhere that EDTA might be a cure. So, I did some investigation on making eye drops using EDTA. I found out that EDTA needed a pH of 8 in order to dissolve. I thought of creating my own pH solution to dissolve the EDTA but decided to check out eye drops to see if any of them had a pH of 8.

I found that 'Systane Ultra' eye drops had a pH of 8. The 'Systane Ultra' dropper bottle was 10 ml. I opened one 600 mg gel capsule of EDTA and dumped the total contents of the capsule into the 10 ml dropper bottle of 'Systane Ultra' eye drops. The EDTA completely dissolved in it with no problem.

So, I used these drops every day and sometimes several times a day. My next appointment was supposed to be in November 2020 but because of covid it was rescheduled to April 20,2021.

The doctor reexamined my eye and found no improvement in the cataract. So, I just wanted to report this to save other people the trouble of doing this experiment again. EDTA for cataracts is also mentioned in the following link:

For what it's worth.

FRANK, ORH here, and I have had over 120 EDTA chelations in the last 14 years to clean out my blood vessels and heavy metals. I am also aware that some have no longer needed glasses when good blood flow got to their eyes. I have never heard of EDTA reversing cataracts. I have used a DMSO protocol for that, but the FDA got involved and took my supplier's license. That put me on a guilt trip.

Just got in from our little farm and we quit when it hit 90 degrees. Like the ole sayin, "The Ole Gray Mare ain't what she used to be". 15 year old football player is working out because he lives on a farm. Today, I gave him a raise. If he saves his money, he can buy a decent used car by age 16. I require him to know all our veggies and the name of all the trees on our farm. All these kids that have hung with me go on to get degrees and are prepared for life. I send them to HKU.




I wish you would write a book about your musings on life and health and the farm and the tractor driver, football player, and other people with whom you interact. I LOVE your posts. I have nothing in particular to say — only that when I see your initials I read each post thoroughly! Thank you.


KC,,, ORH here, and appreciate your kind words. We love the panhandle of Fla and their beaches. Over a lifetime going to the beach was a hit or miss. We went when I was at Redstone in '61. We did not go when we lived on St Simons in the late 60's. We started going on and off in the 70's but went in earnest when we moved to Selma in '82. That was right after Hurricane Fredrick and the beach was just cabins. Soon they started building high rises and turned the natural beach into a carnival or put- put courses. Thus, we moved east and eventually ended up on St George's Island twice a year, every spring and fall. Now we too old to drive through Atlanta, so we just do our lake thing. We still get our shrimp from Brunswick or St George's Isl. No sewage shrimp for me, thank you.

My story today is about the miracle of hatching eggs. We have chicks that are 4 weeks old and we have another dozen in the incubator. Tractor Driver heard a chirp awhile ago and she checked and yep, one is pecking it's way out of the shell. That is an amazing thing to watch. You put the large or air end of the egg up and that is where the chicks head is. After 21 days they begin to peck a circle in the top and soon the chick is out of their shell. Now some people say that this is the work of our Lord. But I think this happens because we once had a big bang and everything just happened to fall in place. BS, BS, BS. If you work with plants and animals, you know there is a higher being that puts all this into place. Right now we need him more than ever. I ask for his guidance daily.

Go to the farm tomorrow because the field peas did not come up. Have to replant 3 ea 100' rows. Guess I did not dry my seeds properly.

Chick has the top off and it is a Rhode Island Red and not a Plymouth Rock. Phyllis thinks she's their mother and is talking to it. But she also talks to our cats and dog. Strange woman.

I've been "seeing" very positive results in only 3 weeks using drop that contain active Ingredients: Glycerin 1.0% Hydroxypropylmethylcellulose 0.03%Inactive Ingredients: Boric acid, citric acid, N-acetyl-carnosine, potassium bicarbonate, purified benzyl alcohol, and sterile water. 1 drop in each eye every evening.

and 20mg Lutein once daily. Previously I was experiencing cloudy vision and "tired" eyes and was told upon eye examination that I had cataracts. Eyes are no longer tired and I'm reading the bottom line on TV news banners easily from a distance where I couldn't before.

Has anyone found glutathione helpful for diminishing cataracts? If so, what daily dosage taken and length of time for results, etc.? Thanks.

Glutathione is found in very high concentrations in the lens of the eye and plays a vital role in keeping the lens healthy. Specifically, glutathione functions as an antioxidant, maintains the structure of the lens proteins, acts in various enzyme systems, and participates in amino acid and mineral transport. Glutathione levels are diminished in virtually all forms of cataracts. To raise glutathione levels, eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables. Fruits and vegetables containing the most glutathione per serving include asparagus, peppers, carrots, onion, broccoli, avocados, squash, spinach, garlic, tomatoes, grapefruit, apples, oranges, peaches bananas and melon. The glutathione content in these foods is substantially higher than in their cooked counterparts. Dr. Murray has found that not only can the progression of cataract formation be stopped, but it can even be reversed in the early stages. However, significant reversal of well-developed cataracts does not appear possible at this time. In cases of marked vision impairment, cataract removal and lens implant may be the only alternative. As with most diseases, prevention or treatment at an early stage is most effective. Here is the website with the information

Glyconutrients were given to my mother on 15-dec-2007 for Cataracts and Glaucoma. My mom is blind in on eye and has 40% vision in the other eye. It has not yet been 2 weeks and already she can read without her glasses on. My mom is 82 and Glaucoma would've lead to blindness. We are thrilled with the results.

EC: Please type "glyconutrients" into a search engine and you will see the word "SCAM" appear repeatedly. We used to have a page on glyconutrients (with mostly negative reviews) but ended up deleting it last year after receiving an email from the legal department of a certain glyconutrient company!

Another thing to note is the date of the original poster's email - 12/2007. We received a few posts on glyconutrients between 2007 - 2009, but they all stopped after February 2009, when a maker of glyconutrients agreed to pay $6 million to settle a lawsuit brought by the Texas attorney general. The state alleged that the  company made false claims about its health benefits and marketed products as cures and treatments for diseases.

Here in Brazil we have a kind of honey named "Mel de Jataí" that folk people believe to cure cataract. I have been using it in my eyes and feel a great improvement. It is necessary to use one drop a day in each eye for two months and the cataract will vanish. I was diagnosed with cataract a few months ago. You may research for a correspondent honey in English. I think it is worth trying.

EC: Here's an excerpt on Honey Jatai from Brazil that we found online.

..."The honey of jataí bees is sought after for its medicinal properties and immunological, anti-inflammatory, analgesic, sedative, expectorant, desensitizing and antibacterial effects. It is also effective for swollen eyes and treatment of cataracts."

Lemon juice or a dozen lemon drops (+/-) in a little water (boiled and cooled to room temperature) and wash your open eyes with it. As your eyes get better it will sting less and less. Sometime in the beginning of last century there was a doctor who dissected both normal and cataractic eyes. The striking difference he found was the lack of vitamin C in the middle of the cataractic eyes. This you can do forever.

Castor oil also works as it has a lot of omega oils. But you need to make sure it comes from a reputable source. That means that it probable brings a certificate of analysis with it. The reason being that some of the producers may not have the means/habit of being thorough about its purity. If you can get it from a chemists that is ideal.

The ideal is probably, much later on after recovery, and only every so often to put a few castor oil drops before bedtime.

What I found is that the reversal has to be maintained and every case is different. So you need to pay attention to your individual needs.

To be safe you do not put anything in your eyes that you would not eat/drink. (the inverse is not true! :D)

Serrapeptase is really good. Make sure you are not (at the same time) taking meds to thin the blood.

You should also eat raw leaf greens + 1 carrot (medium size - there are daily limits - this is safe) + green apple. And whatever other raw (organic preferably) veg or fruit you wish. You can either do a smoothie or juice it.

Another important thing is to do eye exercises (never force). You will find useful ones on youtube.

Posted by Raphael (Bangkok) on 08/09/2013

For cataracts, try taking fresh lemon and pt 1 drop on each eye. Its burns, you'll cry a bit but it will help to clean the eye and keep it healthy. You can do the same with wild honey!! It works even for colds -- some honey in the eye will dry your nose!!

Multiple Remedies

I was diagnosed with the beginning stages of a cataract. Of course, the only solution offered at my doctor's office was to, "wait until I needed surgery." Not an option!

The Internet is full of advice, but can be overwhelming. So here's what I've found, so far, and I'll try to keep it brief:

1. Invest in a good quality multi-vitamin. I use a tab without Iron. It will give you base for adding other vitamins and supplements.

2. Purchase a good quality supplement that contains bilberry, gingko, lutein, and eyebright.

3. Glutathione is important in maintaining good eye health...especially as we age. BUT, I just learned today, that it isn't as well absorbed in pill form. Going forward, I will use the spray (sub-lingual).

4. Hyaluronic Acid is important.

5. Extra B5 and Vitamin C is important.

6. Check with your Naturopath as to upper limits and interactions/side effects before you start any supplement regimen.

7. Add rich colored organic fruits, vegetables and juices to your daily diet. I drink a lot of beet and carrot juice and citrus. Have spinach/kale with garlic at least once a week. I also double filter my drinking water. I suppose steam distilled water is best, but I will not buy it at the store in plastic containers. Need to investigate a DIY system.

8. There are a lot of eye exercises that will strengthen your vision. I found a site recently and spoke with one of the business owners. They are one of very few naturopathic optometrists in the U.S. (trust me, I've been looking for weeks): I've already tried the eye exercises and am getting great results.

9. I do a lot of computer work and recently discovered that there is a direct correlation between tightened neck/shoulder muscles and the eyes. Also, with dental work and the eyes. Ask your dentist to limit x-rays, or cover your eyes with another lead blanket. Limit the time that you lie flat in the chair or, during a lengthy procedure, ask if you can sit up or walk around. I developed eye flashes and, later, dark floaters, after a 2 hour procedure at my endodontist's office.

10. Use UV sunglasses. Also, take your glasses off when you can to let your eyes do some of the work and get exercise. Do relaxation and eye exercises before bedtime along with warm and cold compresses and de-stress!

N-Acetyl-L-Carnosine, Colloidal Silver

Posted by Yohanan (Israel) on 10/10/2013

Cataracts can now be easily removed without surgery using drops. These drops use a chelation process to remove cataracts, which are advanced glycation end products, from the lens.The drops contain N-Acetyl L-Carnosine and colloidal silver and can be found on the internet. A crust will form outside the eye as the cataracts are removed.

Replied by Prioris

Due to the expense of Can-C, I plan on making my own eye drops with Acetyl-L-Carnosine powder. I will use 100 mg of ALC powder in 5 ml of distilled water to make 2% solution. Is there anything else I need to know?

Replied by Yohanan

Your ingredient proportions are incorrect - see cataract articles on Out of the Box Remedies dot net for more information. The Cataract Terminator is much cheaper than CAN-C, and at least twice as effective. It can be ordered cheaply from the Out of the Box Remedies dot COM website. Also, the N-Acetyl-L-Carnosine will cost you a minimum of $300 for 100 mg!

Replied by Prioris

The price helps make the cure economically accessible to way more people. If people still can't afford it even at that price then they can make it themselves.

I don't think I have cataracts yet but I'd rather be proactive. Plus it seems to cure a broad spectrum of eye problems and could produce crystal clear vision over time.

N-acetyl-l-carnosine can be purchased on amazon for hardly anything. Can you just mix the nac with water to make your own home made solution?

Replied by Prioris

I found an online place where one can buy 10 grams of N-acetyl-l-carnosine powder for around $40. Did not find it on amazon.

1 ml of water equals 1 gram. To make 2 percent solution one for 100 mg in water, there would need to be 2 mg of substance added to the water.

Technically, one would need to adjust density of water to account for colloidal solution so one could eye ball it. I don't think it would need to be exact.

I don't have any financial interest in the product but I do think that the cataract terminator is still a good price for people who don't want to muck with the do it yourself stuff so many will prefer the already made solution. One may also need to buy a machine to make the colloidal silver. Also something to measure small amounts and the bottle. Given the varying economic, time and other situations of people, the more options one has the better.

Replied by Mike
(Denver, Colorado)

Prioris: The company that sells the 1 gram of nac for $40 is reputable. The cost is 6 times less than the eye drops. People could put some in a tsp. of water and let that dissolve through the gums to dissolve glycation and ages in the organs and tissues of the body bypassing the digestive system. The digestion may denature the nac. I am not sure but to be sure they can let the nac dissolve through the gums.

Cataracts and piperomia Pellucida: No answers yet on how to use this herb?

Replied by DrJ
(Mumbai, India)

It seems that in Ayurveda, Peperomia pellucida "Skiny Bush" (its common english name) is it only used for infectious diseases of the skin. Although it is now being study as a possible anti arthritis drug its not traditionally used for that nor eye diseases. It is used in Africa for eye diseases and in Creole Medicine (Trinadad) for its antibacterial properties. As far as use for eye diseases it seems that the milky juice from stem and leaves are used traditionally for eye diseases. So tablet form may not benificial nor is it available that i can see so far?

Any natural cateract treatment like this must include cleansing dietary protocol to be totally effective. All forms of topical eye treatment for cateracts will fall short unless internal toxins are addressed.

There is a fantastic book in India called "Health in your Hands" By Devendra Vora which details a Cateract cure using a holistic protocol. He claims that poor flow of blood and "electricity", pituitary gland damage, and local lymph gland toxicity causes Cateracts. The sugar toxins that build up in the eye are not removed and "throw of carbon". The carbon causes this transparency! He also states that excess heat that accumulates in the liver has built up and due to suppression of fever and common cold etc. over the years with modern pharma drugs the heat never gets released from the body so over time the liver overheats. This goes in check with the Traditional Chinese Medicine view very well! Liver=Eyes!

Rx: Triphala powder internally as a eye wash diluted in water overnight acts to cure the problem combined with drinking colloidal mineral waters combined with hand reflex and local eye area acupressure treatment. Also cleansing diet of green juices and whole foods. Eye exercises are included such as looking into the sun at sunrise/sunset and doing eye rolling exercises and palming. He also mentions urine therapy also which was used by Indian Prime Minister Desai for his cateract problem.

At present i have given this treatment to several patients which is similar as above but more simple and easier to understand the complicated explanation in the book. At present there has been complete reduction of worsening of the condition and improvement is occuring but its not happening overnight.

To Guest Mother from Toronto, according to leading Sydney eye surgeon Richard Rawson, lens implants of different focus can be used, one side for distance and the other eye for near vision which generally avoids the need for glasses. Apparently the brain selects the correct focus at any distance automatically. He also discourages the use of variable focus implant lenses as they do not work and cause glaring.

Replied by Guest Mother
(Toronto, Canada)

Thank you so much for the reply. In my daughter's case, cataract was there only in one eye. Her right eye is completely normal with good eye sight. So the problem of near and far vision is only for left eye. Please advise if the strategy will work in this case too.

WARNING regarding the testimonial for this herb and it supossedly curing cataracts (posted 6/20/2008 from a Tan Koon Peng) which stated: "Two weeks later she felt that her eyes were painful, she immediately rub her eyes and to her surprise the thin films covering her eyes were on her finger and her vision is clear once again. "

CATARACTS ARE NOT A SURFACE CONDITION OF THE EYE - they are a clouding of the "lense" of the eye which sits behind the Iris and Pupil. (the above is a physical impossibility!!! )

As an FYI - I have spent many years researching cataract causes/hopeful cures. I had my 1st cataract surgery when I was 35 yrs old. As with any disease I believe there is a necessity to understand the "cause" which is often (and still is in my case) a mystery. Even with all the doctors I visited (and got educated from) the most valuable information I gathered was from NORD (the National Organization for Rare Disorders). I believe they list/describe about 19 different Cataracts. Though cataracts are far from "rare" the knowledge and descriptions listed there could educate more than a few of the doctors I have seen over the years and definitely enlightened me on my quest for a cause and a cure. YES, you do have to pay for any reports you order (this site is aimed at assisting Docs/medical community as well) but in my case it was well worth it and didn't cost that much!

Warning: If you have had cataract surgery, do not ever use any eye-drop remedy containing DMSO. DMSO is a powerful solvent and will cloud your new plastic lenses and your eyesight will become worse. In fact, even if you use DMSO drops in only one eye, it will affect your other eye.

Nobody is talking about cataracts? I would love to hear from anyone that has had good results from natural methods. My sister is facing cataract surgery. She is undecided on having it, and open to natural methods. Please let me know if there is anyone here on EC that knows about successful alternatives. I see the remedy lists, but I don't see anyone stepping up with actual good results;) Thank you much, Denise

Denise, The only person that I've found that has a healing method for cataracts is Dr. Sam Berne. His website is He incorporated a 15% msm drops, eye exercises and supplements. Eye exercise are free. My friend tried the CAN-C drops that work for some people, didn't work for him and he is currently using Dr Sam's 4% MSM solution.


Denise, Did Dr. Sams MSM eye drops work for eliminating cataracts? Thank you. Joan

I bought my friend the 15% solution from Dr. Sam Berne. She used the drops from August 2020 to the present and didn't feel there was any improvement. Wish there was. It may be that there is something out there, but haven't found it yet. Other things tried were Can-C and Dr. Teds remedy. Also tried a holist cataract formula. Maybe some remedies work on some people.

This is to Emily from L.A., Ca. regarding something for cataracts.

I read in Dr. David G. Williams "Alternatives" Newsletter about an ointment or drops from Vietnam. He was having a hard time getting them into the U.S. at the time. It was some 15-20 years ago. Maybe there are some of his ( Dr. David Williams) followers that can update us on that. Sorry, I can't be of much help. I'm sure there is something out there, don't give up. Happy hunting. If you find something, post it. lol.
